I'm having problems configuring my ape-server. First, I reside behind a corporate firewall where our own DNS servers are maintained. I requested a domain name for my server and was provided
uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com from my IT group. Therefore, my website works and can be accessed via (intranet only) at
I followed the instructions at ape-project.org and run the Check Tool at the end only to find I get an error stating:
Running test : Contacting APE Server (adding frequency) Can't contact APE Server. Please check the folowing url is pointing to your APE server : http://0.uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com:6969
/etc/apache2/apache2.conf module looks as follows:
<VirtualHost *:80> Servername uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com ServerAlias ape.uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com ServerAlias *.ape.uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com DocumentRoot "/var/www/" </VirtualHost>
/var/www/ape-jsf/Demos/config.js config section looks as follows:
APE.Config.baseUrl = 'http://uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com/ape-jsf'; APE.Config.domain = 'uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com'; APE.Config.server = 'uslonsweb003.us.mycompany.com:6969';
The instructions at ape-project.org tell me that the
APE.Config.server should be `ape.mydomain.com:6969'; but that does not work (I'm assuming because my corporate DNS does not understand the 'ape' before the domain name since 'ape' was not registered with the IT DNS). So therefore, I changed it to what you see above.
Please help!! Thanks in advance
per the installation instructions located on this page http://www.ape-project.org/wiki/index.php/Advanced_APE_configuration under 'Configure your Server/Computer' (I'm running it on a server obviously) It says I need to add some lines to my DNS config file.
It sounds like (since I'm within a corporate network) I would ask my IT group to add the following lines to the DNS configuration file on their end:
ape IN A x.x.x.x ; IP address of my APE server *.ape IN CNAME ape
I just want to make sure this is all I have to have them add (or if this is even correct) before I ask them.
